Came over to England for my birthday 🎉 to see the family and discovered this Restaurant. I had calamari and lobster carbonara which was amazing, will definitely be coming back as the service was great and the food was out of this world 🇨🇦👍🍾🎉

I enjoyed this restaurant because the mixed seafood special was presented in a lovely manner, wine choices great and patio were exquisite. The service was perfect and overall enjoyed the meal.

I had dinner here and couldn't finish it, due to the high levels of salt. I chose the bouillabaisse fish soup, which contained an old chewy piece of salmon, a few shrimp, some tired mussels and a few rubbery clams. The food was edible but the soup was so salty I could barely eat a few mouthfuls. The servers were... More

This was a wonderful sushi spot to find in the basement of Lapointe's in the market. It was so hot outside and lovely and cool for a sushi lunch. Excellent sushi at a reasonable price (we chose our own).

The menu has changed to mostly breaded fish!!! It used to be a great fish restaurant, now, less than mediocre. or worse. They don't even carry their sesame crusted salmon signature dish. Lapoint's, apologize to the fish!!

This place is dependable, but the menu and cooking need work, especially the fish. My fish was overcooked but edible. The steamed vegetables were nice. Dessert was also nice - flourless chocolate cake, though a bit heavy.

We went to this place known for its fish. Were in a Friday night. Good food but nothing unusual concerning presentation and flavour. Very bad service. It took 4 requests to get the drinks. Felt rushed to order, no suggestions offered. Bread was served after the appetizers were eaten.

The atmosphere was pretty good, and half of the food was really good, while the other half was only average (which would be fine if the price was average). The sea food was excellent, and the steak was average (perhaps that shouldn't be a surprise at a sea food restaurant, but then perhaps they shouldn't charge $30.00 for it). The... More

This wonderful restaurant is located in the heart of Bayward Market. They get all their seafood from their own fish market, and all their vegetables and fruit fresh from the vendors in the market. We had a 5 star meal, served by a wonderful waitress named Eli. She surprised us with a gourmet dessert and coffee in honor of our... More
